As You Like It

Synopsis
Independent low-budget feature film based on As You Like It. "Students from a city high school are on a field trip when the suspended Rosalind and her friends decide to gatecrash the party to win the heart of the school’s new wrestling champion, Orlando. But, to ensure that no one recognises them for who they really are, the fallen queens of the schoolyard disguise themselves as chavs - and male ones at that. Out in the sticks the field trip turns into a collision of sub cultures as emos, geeks, ‘It’ crowd, goths and now chavs are all forced together". [Summary from BYFA website].
